Is the reason that we like Master Windu becuase hes black, has a purple lightsaber, or just because hes Samuel L. Jackson?

You tell me.

Very elaborate DarthOxyClean.

How can anyone not like Mace Windu? He's Shaft. Lucas shoulda named him Shaft Windu, the baddest mutha in the Jedi Temple.

I wholly agree XD I like him as an awesome character with the perfect actor to play him. Sam Jackson is Mace Windu, Shaft, and Jules from Pulp Fiction.

We like Mace Windu because he is a type of character we have never seen before in the Star Wars universe. (And I don't mean he is black or his blade is purple)

1. He is not arrogant, like Anakin
2. He is not "fight-first-ask-questions-later", like Han
3. He is not cryptically wise, like Yoda
4. He is not obviously menacing, like Maul or Vader
5. He is not someone we immediatly love, like Artoo

He is calm, he is patient, his words are always wise, yet they always are straight to the point, he has an unmatched determination and focus when in battle, and he has a Darkside edge to him that we have never seen in a good guy, other than Anakin. In Anakin, it is more obvoius, in Windu, it is more quiet, but you can tell that it is there when you look at him, and into his eyes; his gaze is deep, and it seems to see everything. We know that he can see shatterpoints, and therefore he, in a sense, can see "everything". He usually shows little to no emotion, because he always can see your shatterpoint. He is a totally different type of character.

There, StarWarsPhreak, is that any better? :laugh6:

Uhhh, what he said.

06-25-2006, 01:16 AM
You tell me.

I like him because hes a human, black, bad-ass Jedi Master that would whip you if you crossed him. Plus hes has the best lightsaber, I think.

You're all wrong, its these compliance chips in the back of our necks.

HAHA Im pretty sure the Purple Saber has nothing to do with Mace being black lmao!

06-27-2006, 04:04 PM
I think you missed the point, dude...

lolz...before AOTC, in interviews SLJ was indicating that his character was going to be doing more action scenes, like "Shaft In Space" :p

There is another dark skinned jedi in AOTC if you look carefully, but he's decidedly less 'shaft' -like than SLJ/Mace. He looks more like TV's Benson, who was funny, but not kick-ass cool :p

As for Mace's sabre, it is well documented that SLJ insisted on having a purple one, despite GLs initial objections - as it would ruin his jedi/sith color scheme(as depicted in the movies - EU doesnt count!) Thus was created Mace's Electrum sabre :)

He didn't ask for a purple lightsaber specifically. He asked something of his be purple (his trademark color).

06-28-2006, 04:53 PM
Purple is the best colour in the world. In fact, this is the only forum where I don't write all of my posts in purple which is odd. Maybe I should.

c'mon sithy.... He wanted the sabre specifically. He's said it many interviews.

The famous quote regarding this is:
"George was like, 'Let me think about it'. Every now and then I'd say to him, 'So did you think about it?' He'd be all, 'Hmmm, well...er...' "Then when we went back to do some shots in London he said, 'Hey, take a look at this.' He pulled up some footage and my lightsaber comes up purple. "I was like, 'Is this just for this or is it going to be like that in the movie?' He goes, 'No, you got it.'"

heck, I even read it in an interview he did circa ROTS on maxim too



The main part of it was that he wanted to stand out in geonosis shots for AOTC, not to mention just look cool because he had a different colour than everyone else.

Trivia Tidbit: SLJ has "BMF" on the hilt of his 'dress' lightsaber. He got to keep it after ROTS :D

How cool would would that be? Mace Windu with a pimp hat? He could completly redo the whole Jedi temple in chrome!

Or better yet P.I.M.P Wars! Just imagine! Go wild! It'd be great! Oh the possibilities!
This Party's over Motha****a
